Ask Dr. Anna: Which joint supplements for dogs work?

Joint supplements can help with your dog’s joints but only if they contain the proper ingredients at the correct strength.  There is so much information available about joint supplements for dogs.  It is important to educate yourself on ingredients that help your dog with joint health and mobility.


All joint supplements for dogs are considered nutraceuticals.  A nutraceutical is defined as a non-drug substance made to improve the health and the well-being of your pet.  Because they are not medication, these supplements are considered food and not regulated by the FDA.  Be cautious because most nutritional supplements are not regulated for efficacy, quality, or safety in the same way that drugs are regulated.  Ask your veterinarian for their recommendation for joint supplements for dogs.
